Print to PDF - how to automate for each filter value

The new Print to PDF function in Power BI Desktop 2.6 is excellent. Pixel perfect.  Each month I need to print a separate PDF for each value of a report filter: Set filter to x, print to pdf, sef filter to y, print to pdf, set filter to z, print to pdf etc. You get the point.  I've got to to do this 50 times which is pretty tedious. Is there any way to automate this?

There are different types of Premium Licences. See below.  This talk form the BI Summit goes into more detail

The functionality will suppoed to be released in the August BI Service drop as a Preview feature and will be limited to reports created by Report Builder accessing data sources directly (not able yet to access a BPIX Model but can be based the same data sets and the designed in report builder) expectation  is for this to be enhanced over time but the roadmap for this is not clear.

Good to know the capability is on the radar, thanks. Does "P" stand for Pro or Premium? And do we know when this capabality is expected to become available?
